As in every endeavor knowledge is power. In the world of staffing & recruiting there is so much to know. The good news is that this site is like a wonderful town square, where like minded people go to gather and share the news of the day. There are so many interesting conversations to participate in.

Essentially, it describes the response to an insult or cutting remark, when it comes to late to be useful. Romantically, a spirit that comes to you on the stairs, as you leave a party, telling you what you should have said when… Continue

I am going to go with anniversary.

just curious because, if you watch the news, you are hearing how this is affecting people in their daily lives. there is nothing more daily the getting in your car, turning on the radio (hopefully satellite radio) and driving to work. with gas nearing (or over) $4.00 per gallon, this has to affect the way we recruit. i have seen a drop off in my recruitment with respect to how long people are willing to commut to work. it's not so much a time factor, rather its how much is it going to cost me… Continue

But I just got spammed

Real quick wanted to add another tip on how to get more connections on Linkedin. And FYI I'm over 5100 now so these techniques work. That's about 1000 connections in the last month and I've only sent 250 invites out. And another 100+- resends.
Old Invites can be a Gold Mine.
Yea I know you already sent them one invite but somehow it either got ignored or lost or forgotten.
I started going through my old invites and resending the invites to people and they started… Continue

So here's my basic routine.
